FARM MARKET PROMOTION GRANT AWARDED TO DCB
Dakota College at Bottineau is one of the recipients administered by USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service for community development, training and technical assistance. The award of $297,325.00 will be to enhance consumer marketing strategies of ND farmers markets and market producers. Dakota College at Bottineau will increase the capacity of North Dakota Farmers Markets. The state’s changing demographics and increased interest in local foods present great opportunity for farmers market vendors. However, North Dakota’s rural volunteer-
run farmers markets lack the time, resources, and training to effectively meet increased consumer demand. The project will benefit 50 farmers markets and 500 farmers market vendors.
